I keep thinking

of moving or duplicating my blog to aWordPress version. Haven’t decided yet but blogger have just announced another round of changes. I shall wait and see how things pan out.

On top of that decision to be made,  I am mega cheesed off. Absolutely EVERYTHING is irritating the hell out of me. Lack of sleep isn't helping. I am now averaging just 3 hours each night. I am lucky that half a tablet of the 2 a night version of Nytol is enough to get me to sleep so have decided to have quite a few days of those to see if that helps (which it usually does).

Poor DB, he must be cheesed off with me, as I keep getting so annoyed at things. If the beeper on the cooker goes off to signal something, off I go, moan, moan, moan. Ruby is also bearing the brunt poor girl. I try to shut doors so she isn't following me all the time which irritates me further even though I know she just wants to be with me or hopeful of some food. We always end the day with a cuddle though so she knows she is still loved. She is lying under my chair whilst I'm typing:)

My eyes seem to have changed yet again as my current reading glasses aren't quite focusing which is giving me eye strain. The ones I normally use for computing are also slightly out of focus. I have a set of glasses for watching the tv, they too are also slightly 'off'.

Yesterday, I spent (with DB helping because I was getting so annoyed), half an hour upgrading our old PS3 software and upgrading a new game software. DS had bought me a requested video for my birthday last year and I was finally ready to have a go.

EX-PLO-SIONS again....

Despite players online telling me I would be able to set up the options as I need, nope, wouldn't do it, they just were not there to be selected. So not only could I not play the game, it became a wasted birthday present.

I am in the less than 10% minority of gamers who need to invert both X and Y axis. Inverting the Y axis is normal in all game options but rarely the X.

Imagine you have a pole stuck through your head, coming out the back. In inverted mode, if I stand behind you and push that pole to the right, your head would move to the left and visa versa. That is the X axis mode. In gaming, a normal X axis means if that pole is pushed right, your head turns right. An inverted Y axis means that if I push the pole up, you look down. Normal Y axis in gaming pushing the pole up you look up.

Its to do with how your brain is wired apparently and us 10% get moaned at by the rest for daring to ask for an X invertion option, so sad.  Even people the same handed as you may play differently.

In essence, it means I can hardly find any interesting game to play. Don't even get me started on gaming companies who begin a trilogy of games only to stop after the first 2, meaning that you never have an ending.

  1. Oh my word, you are having a bad day! I haven't a clue what all that X/Y axis stuff means, but it's obviously irritating you a lot. I know what you mean about Ruby, Betty's the same, she follows me everywhere in the house, it's like she really doesn't want to be on her own. Or she's just plain nosy!

    I got that Google message thing today, don't know what it means for the blog, does it mean that some followers won't be able to comment, or even read?

    I hope the day gets better for you, and that you get some sleep - everything seems much worse when you're really tired doesn't it?

    1. Not sure, we’ll find out soon no doubt. I have been feeling like this for a long time now, wish it were just for today.

  2. I'm sure the last few paragraphs of this post are in a foreign language!! (never seen/played a game of any sort)

    What are blogger changing?

    1. Hah! Can’t tell you about the small changes as the info has now disappeared.

    2. It's something to do with Google+, but as I didn't really understand it and as Dc says, the message has now disappeared (and I can't remember the details anyway!), I can't enlighten you!

  3. I've had a sleepless phase, and could feel my hackles rising about the smallest things, so I sympathise. I could have quite cheerfully torn my mother's head off last Tuesday, though that's not entirely down to being tired :(

    1. Hah! Maybe you should have done! It’s just so frustrating being so snappy.

  4. I know what lack of sleep can do to a person. I hope you manage to catch up soon. I listen to talking books and it relaxes me, then I fall asleep.

    1. Thanks. It’s just got worse and worse over the years. I still have the occasional solid nights sleep but wake up even more tired.

  5. I hope you get some good sleep and start feeling better. Haven't a clue about games on-line except scrabble and words with friends. I did get a message about google but not sure what it means. My email is Google and I sign in to blogger with it too. I use Google Drive for photos but will save them somewhere else. I will have to ask somebody more tech savvy than me.

  7. Oh no. I've been there with that awful lack of sleep and it's maddening- it ruins everything about everything, basically. I'm sorry you're having such a rotten time. :(

    1. Well, being in pain so much you have reason to have a lack of sleep, but I agree, it is rotten.

  8. I go through periods of not sleeping well every couple of months. Then I spend days dragging around. I hope you get a good sleep very soon.

    I hope the changes on Blogger are not too drastic.

    God bless.

    1. Thanks. Blogger changes may not even be noticable, who knows.

  9. Like Sooze and Sue, I don't really follow the vocab but I do got that it is incredibly annoying and disappointing for you and, to be honest, it would probably send me into a grump too. Lack of sleep just exacerbates itall, doesn't it.
    I'm waiting to see what the Blogger changes do as I didn't really understand what the message meant. Hopefully it is nothing too dramatic.

  10. Another one here who doesn't understand what the blogger changes are. Something to do with google plus and the way everything is inter connected. I hope nothing changes in the comments department, just as I have got everything working smoothly and got rid of the spammers.
